I totally don't remember reading your writeup of December 72. I love the month myself and should probably go read that. I haven't visited your page in a while, sometime soon I should do a refresher on some of your older essays, always great reading which makes me wanna go pull out this show or that one (or why I especially love this place, simply clicking the provided link).

Anywho I just finished up the Dark Star>Bobby McGee from 11/26. I didn't listen very critically, though, I was typing emails and stuff, I might give it another listen via headphones while I go to sleep. But I liked the long, floaty 10 minute DS theme jam up to the verse. I don't remember anything specific after that, just a vague spacedown shift with prominent Phil, and I don't remember the transition but I remember the very strong Feelin Groovy Jam once it developed. Then I remember it being anticlimactic, while they can otherwise be very strong performances, I never cared as much for the versions with spacy segments that just blunder into other songs with no developed, jammy transition (a really obvious example might be the jam into Sugar Magnolia from 4/8/72). Somehow the DStheme jam/verse/theme jam/space/next song format isn't as fun as a version that has a spaceout after the verse, then a really developed theme jam with a seque, if I'm making any sense here.

I dunno I got some listening to do, I may report back on these topics again. I hadn't been reading or posting on here for a while, just kinda getting back into checking up around here.
